US aid efforts for the Haiti earthquake appear to be speeding up. By midweek, a total of 5,000 US military personnel will be in the country, with about 5,000 more on ships offshore.
Military jets have begun delivering relief supplies as part of Haiti aid efforts in the wake of the earthquake, but it will take another week for a US Navy hospital ship to reach there. Parachute drops have been ruled out for now, for fear of riots.
Pentagon officials say they're moving as fast as they can, but logistical challenges mean it will be a week before a US Navy hospital ship arrives to help Haiti earthquake victims.
